Transfer experiments continued

Experiment #4:
Image: (left) printed on Staples premium double sided matte paper using an HP inkjet printer
Medium: I used Speedball gloss medium, brushed three coats onto printed image, letting it dry in between coats. I used two coats on the card, letting it dry between coats.
Transfer method: I flipped the image onto painted card, rubbed first with my fingers and then with the back of a spoon and then with a bone folder very roughly.. I noticed when I rubbed it hard, the paper began to move around a but - I think it was releasing from the card.
Results: The finished card almost got the whole image, but some didn't come over :(
Comments: I think I need more coats of medium and much more aggressive rubbing.
